Your command should be your first point of contact if you are considering filing a complaint. You will save time by submitting your complaint to the lowest level in the chain of command.
If you are unable to resolve your issue using your chain of command, you may consider contacting your local IG. The IG will review your complaint to determine whether or not the issue is a matter for the IG. The IG will acknowledge receipt of your complaint and tell you an investigation will be conducted or explain why your issue is not appropriate for investigation.
If you submit your complaint to DoD IG or the Naval Inspector General, your complaint will more than likely be investigated by an IG office in your chain of command. You will save time by submitting your complaint directly to your command IG.
Please be sure to select the CNIC IG or Region IG link on the left navigation bar to file your Online Complaint with the appropriate office. Click on submit and your form will be directed to the IG selected.
Please review the "4-Step Hotline Procedures" link prior to submitting a complaint.
